Can Hot Yoga Make You Lose Weight

Hot yoga is not for the faint of heart. Classes lasting 60 to 90 minutes in rooms as hot as 105 degrees Fahrenheit are no easy feat.

You'll build muscle, you'll gain flexibility, you'll sweat and chances are good that you'll lose weight.

But weight loss and calories burned in hot yoga depend on many factors, only some of which are within your control.

Weight-Loss Basics First things first: Weight loss and fat loss are two different things. Weight loss refers to a number on the scale; fat loss means losing adipose tissue.

Calories Burned in Hot Yoga Typically, more intense exercise burns more calories. For example, jogging burns more calories than walking and sprinting burns more than jogging.

How long you practice, your current weight, your fitness level and gender also play roles in how many calories you'll burn.

The average calories burned in a 90-minute hot yoga class, according to Tracy's findings, are about equivalent to walking at a pace of 3.5 miles per hour for the same amount of time.
